Security Alert: Commercial Flight Options from Haiti

Given the current security situation and infrastructure challenges, U.S. citizens in Haiti should depart Haiti as soon as possible via commercial or private transport. Multiple airlines and charter companies currently offer flights from Haiti’s international airports (Port-au-Prince and Cap-Haitien).  Flights fill up quickly and seats may only be available several days or even weeks in advance of departure.  Given that there may be a limited number of seats, U.S. citizens should consider booking flights in advance.  The following is a non-exhaustive list of commercial airlines servicing Haiti:

American Airlines
Air Caraibe
Sunrise Airways

U.S. citizens wishing to depart Port-au-Prince should monitor local news and only do so when considered safe.

Please contact if you are having challenges in departing Haiti or if you need to apply or request the return of a U.S. passport (or other travel document) to travel to the United States.

Actions to take:

  • Use extreme caution in traveling around the country;
  • Avoid demonstrations and large gatherings of people;
  • If you encounter a roadblock, turn around and get to a safe area;
  • Make and practice contingency plans for sheltering in place and/or accessing airports; and
  • Review the guidance on travel to High Risk Areas.
